Puerto Vallarta Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Located in the very northwest of the state of Jalisco, the resort city of Puerto Vallarta is one of Mexico’s most famous beach destinations. Naturally, the number one attraction here is the sun and ocean, but you can explore the surrounding fishing villages, learn more about Mexican culture or even go whale watching. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Vallarta:

  • Los Muertos Beach. Despite its very ominous name, the Beach of the Dead is, in fact, one of the nicest and most popular areas of Puerto Vallarta. Named after the bodies of sailors from the shipwrecks that used to wash up in the area in the old days, it is now known for its pier, central location, many beach bars, restaurants, and hip atmosphere. Water taxis to the nearby beach town of Yelapa, a significantly more quiet and relaxed destination, take off from here.
  • Aquaventuras Park. One of the most popular family attractions in the area, Aquaventuras is dedicated to the conservation of Pacific marine animals such as sea lions and different species of dolphins. In addition to the wildlife, there are also attractions like waterslides and possibilities to try different extreme sports. Aquaventuras is located outside of the city center, but the drive north takes only about 20 minutes.
  • Nayarit. Located just a stone’s throw to the north, the neighboring state of Nayarit is the perfect place for anyone craving an off-the-beaten-track experience. The region has a number of resort towns (especially in its southern parts near Puerto Vallarta), but also lots of wild beaches in the north, mangrove growths, dry forests, and plenty of wildlife. Meanwhile, the regional capital, Tepic, boasts a mixture of well-preserved colonial architecture and interesting museums.
